Your manifesto / rules to live by / motto:

Change your perspective.


How would you describe your work if you left out all the boring parts?

Simple and unique.


Pen, pencil or stylus?

All of the above!


Be honest: how often do you clean your desk?

At least twice a week. I’m very O.C.D.

 

Caran d'Ache 849 Metal Ballpoint Pen

The Swiss are well-known for making small, precise and beautiful goods and Caran d'Ache shows why. This storied company has been a formidable presence in the fine writing world for over 90 years, and their streamlined styles and durable manufacturing keep them fresh. 

Trendy, chic and modern. The 844 mechanical pencils do not go unnoticed. Totally modern pure color makes this pencil pop, and the substantial but light aluminum body gives optimal comfort in the hand. The 844 pencil matches your mood and satisfies your style requirements. Reliable and enduring. Just like your work (hopefully).
